Broiled Avocados with Chipotle + Cheddar
Recipe type: Brunch, Appetizer
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 4 T shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 chipotle pepper, with a bit of adobo sauce, finely minced
  1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits.
  2. Toss the cheese together with the chipotle pepper and sauce.
  3. Evenly distribute the mixture among the avocado halves (about 1 T per half), taking care to cover as much of the avocado as possible.
  4. Place on a broiler pan covered in aluminum foil, and then slide under the broiler, about 4" from the element, for 3 minutes or until the cheese browns and bubbles. As usual with the broiler, don't wander off! When your food is done, it's DONE!
Serve at brunch passed family style to accompany any egg dish; or serve with crackers as a quick and easy appetizer.
